Anticipating a weekend of R & R in the mountainous region of Northern Arizona, nine college buddies lodge at a remote cabin -- where local lore warns them of the horrifying evil that slinks in the dark forest. Dismissing the cautions of the nearby townspeople, the friends are now trapped in a night of blood-soaked terror that will transform this simple getaway into a permanent vacation. David Michael Quiroz Jr. helms this indie slasher flick.Written by

Here's a low budget film that manages to entertain despite the low budget. A bunch of the usual folk you see in these types of film head off to a cabin in the woods to get drunk, bicker, make the beast with two backs etc etc. You know the drill. They stop off at a gas station where they meet at least two sinister folks giving them the evil eyeball. Then it's off to the cabin we go for the usual slasher film.
Except The Lonely Ones decides to become really good by not being a slasher film and instead having our annoying youngster being attacked by a pack of flesh eating ghouls! So instead of wandering around a house looking for each other and being picked off one by one, we instead have our actors being laid siege to while they watch the ghouls messily eating one of their own (and this guy gets his head torn off for good measure).
Throw in a couple of twists, some gore, and a nice pitched battle between the norms and the ghouls, and you could have a good time with this one. It's not perfect by the way (these dudes still do some stupid stuff, like leaving a wounded guy next to an open door) but it's unusual enough in it's execution to watched once.
